The story of their reporting is iu itself tale with the tana of the fron tier somehow about ft. Sub-totals came in readily enough from the villages. Sections far from even these little cen ters relayed reports into Soleu hy tele phone, working in roundabout ways when wires were reported down at the usual connecting points. And then, regardless of the freeing cold, 1 the knife-edged winds that swept the great open .spaces, or the snow that covered field and roadway, the Sioux m*.en gers. riding iwnies, or, as happened in at least one instance, coming undaunt edly afoot, brought to Soltfn the word of the roll call in the little, lonely, out lying places. And it is these figures, added together, that show the 75 ier cent of the Indian population enrolled. The Answer of the Sioux. II is the answer of the "Sioux to tlie pitiful wordless plea of the stricken millions across the seas. It is the reply of the red men to the cry of his white brothers in the far-off lands. And more than all. it is the great hearted American response to these de seendants of the very first Americans this latest call of their Amej-icn. "This record made by the Sioux." said Mr. Wilbur this morning, "ex ceeds that of every North Dakota coun ty reported in thus far except Nelson, and it approximately equals that. It is more than double the average for the state as a \yhole. Because I felt that the inspiration of it stadbld be sent to Red Cross workers everywhere, I am sending a special report on it to division headquarters for transmission to Washington,' and thence in due time for transmission overseas. I have also asked Mr. Johnson to fittnish a rather detailed report later on this roll call among the Siolix." The story of (the Red Cross among the Sioux on the Standing Itock reser vation, is one of unusual interest in many ays and of peculiar significance. It began, so the records in the state Red Cross headquarters show, nearly IS months ago when State Director N. C. Young sent Frank Fiske, reservation photographer at Fort Yates, to the late Chief John Grass with instructions to explain to him the work of the Red Cross, convey the greetings of the state officers, and ask his approval Jind sup|Krt. "Ho Hecetu" Says Chief. Mr. Fiske's report, on tile in the headquarters here, tells ofHiis visit to the old chief toward sunset', on one of the -long days of the Dakota sum mer. In accord with the immemorial custom. Chief Grass received his vis itor in silence and then, after a long wait, signalled him to state his mis sion. The war was new to America then, and little of it had reached the men and women out there on the res ervation. Patiently Fiske, who later enlisted as a soldier for America, told the story of the war. of the Red Cross, of the dire need, and of the great task ahead of America. As he finished, the face of the old man. who had listened gravely and hi unbroken silence, lighted. He stood erect and uttered the great Sioux word of approval: "Mo hecetu." lie agreed to serve as vice chairman of the Sioux county chapter, and his name appears on the records as ont of the P.fc charter members certified to I headquarters. War Fund Record. Steadily, as the old chief explained the work and the war to his people, the Red Cros membership increased. The Junior Red Cross was organized and photographs began to conic out of the reservation showing the Indian I children at their Red Cross work while |'the products of their lingers begun to go overseas to the men lighting there, I for America. The story of the war was no longer ja strange one on the reservation. The Red Cross told part of it. The young men of the Sioux began to leave for the training camps and the battle front, and the grim earnestness of it all came home. Albert Grass, grandson of the old chief, was one of those who early answered the call for fighting men. The tirst real test of the Sioux coun ty chapter came with the second Red Cross war fund drive last May. Re ports from authentic sources reached the state headquarters that it vvas^ 1 poor time to make a financial demand on the iieople of the county. State Di rector Young and Secretary Wilbur hesitated long before making the ap portionment, but ultimately elected to make it o\i the same principles and basis as governed the apportioning gen erally. They asked Sioux county to raise #1,000. All things considered, it was a heavy apportionment. Chairman Fiske was installed as campaign manager. Chief Grass took told of the work anions the Indians as far as his failing health would per mit. When the drive ended. Sioux county had raised in cash and pledges a total of $1 .G!2. or better than 160 per cent on its apportionment. Much of it was cash, realized from the auc tioning of horses, cattle, and- other property donated by the Indians. The foil Calf Campaign. Changes came as the weeks and months went'liy. Chief Grass left tlie reservation and his ]eopIe forever, his spirit journeying to the lanr' «f Great Spirit where the war lodges grj closed forever. Later, only a tew svee«.s ago. came the letter from Capt. Welch of Bismarck, telling that Albert Grass had been killed in action while clean ing out a machine gun nest. Twenty four Huns, he wrote, had fallen the old chief's grandson before.a bul let ended the war for him. The fight ing prowess of the Sioux had been gloriously sustained. Then came the Red Cross Christmas roll call. State's Attorney Edward S. Johnson was chosen to manage it. He accepted, and. despite "the difficulties, went to work with a will. Travel was difficult. Weather conditions were bad. Influenza wits epidemic there, as-else where. and for a time Mr. Johnson himself was ill with it. The Indians asked for their canvassjng supplies and he got them to them. They canvassed tirelessly. And on Christmas eve 75 per cent, of all the Sioux on the reser vation had been enrolled, and the Red Cross service flag, emblem of mercy and humanity, hung in nearly. every Sioux'home with t.ho little crosses tip on 1t tolling of the almost universal membership. .Is Christian Sermon. 'That is the record," said Secretary Wilbur as he closed the files. "And that is why I think the such a significant story lines.
